Mama Kat Thursday: That Went Well

My Hubby is the sort of guy who, whenever he gets an idea of something funny to say, he just blurts it out.
Recently we went to our local Air Force Commissary, where we go weekly, and we passed a woman employee unloading boxes of Reese's Easter Egg Chocolates into a Easter display and had a grocery cart full of empty Reeses Egg boxes.
This woman also happens to be a cashier we've met in line while checking out for many years.
But all Hubby sees is all those empty Reeses boxes in the cart and with a big grin, says, "You must have eaten all those!"
He didn't even think about the fact this lady happens to be a short, plump woman.
For a split second she just stared blankly at Hubby, not immediately sure how to take that.

I'm standing there beside Hubby feeling like this GIF of Jim Carey!
Then, a another second later, she broke into a smile. She got the joke. She laughed. Hubby laughed and it was all good.

As we walked away, I whispered to Hubby,
"You really shouldn't say things like that to overweight people. It's just not cool."
He was like, "Oh, I didn't even think of that."

I think that went well.

This amusing post brought to you by Mama Kat's Thursday link-up on the topic of sharing a post ending with, "I think that went well."

Hubby has retold this story several times to other people, so no problem me telling it to the world.
Thanks for Visiting!

universal problem: We can dress 'em up but we can't take 'em out! And you know it's not because they have a 'bad' soul. They're just.....guys. We love 'em, anyway.

It turned out well and the lady was not offended. Me personally, I think I would have pretended not to know him. lol

Uh oh.... I think the worst one I ever heard my husband say, was to the husband of a couple we had JUST met at a dance. They invited us to another dance and my dearly beloved said, "We'll come if I can dance with your wife." They didn't take it as the joke that it was intended and we never saw or heard from them again!
I think that went well. NOT!
